Princess Stéphanie of Luxembourg reveals she has 'no plans' for motherhood yet

By Ainhoa Barcelona

Heir apparent Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and his wife Princess Stéphanie married in 2012 and said at the time that they'd be waiting a few years before having children. It seems that the couple is still not ready to start a family, which Stéphanie confirmed in a recent interview.

Speaking to French magazine Point de Vue on the occasion of her 32nd birthday, Stéphanie said: "I don't have any plans to become a mother. For the moment, I'm enjoying spending time with my husband."

The Belgium-born royal was perhaps responding to recent speculation that she is pregnant. European media suggested that Stéphanie is expecting after she was spotted wearing looser and baggier clothing.

The blonde is the youngest of eight children; her father is Count Philippe de Lannoy and her late mother was Countess Alix de Lannoy.

Stéphanie and her husband Guillaume dated for around two years before announcing their engagement in April 2012.

Six months later the couple married in a civil ceremony at the Town Hall, followed by a larger religious wedding at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Luxembourg.

Guillaume, 34, is expected to succeed his father Grand Duke Henri to the throne. He has four younger siblings in Prince Félix, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra and Prince Sébastien. Louis, who has two sons with his wife Princess Tessy, gave up his succession rights and those of his children Gabriel and Noah upon his marriage.

Apart from Gabriel and Noah, Guillaume and Stéphanie are also the proud uncle and aunt to Princess Amalia, the one-year-old daughter of Prince Félix and his wife Princess Claire.

After Guillaume, Prince Félix is second in line to the throne, followed by baby Amalia who is third in line.
